Product Description

This is May's FREE Pattern Pick. It will be $0 only until 5/31/18. For future FREE Picks, please sign up for free email newsletters.

Here's a versatile hat I designed for my DH. It can be worn as a stylish watch cap when he needs the extra warmth, with its deeply ribbed cuff folded up, or as a slouchy knit hat.

A stripe of contrasting color was knit into the cuff. Once the ribbing is completed, the chevron pattern is worked with a gently shaped crown. The finished hat has a cool, geometric design throughout, ending with a pleasing diamond shape at the top, resembling a dreamcatcher.

Knits up beautifully in the cashmere blend used here, or grab some cushy worsted-weight yarn from your stash, adding stripes or color changes as you wish to fit your yardage.

A lace version is included as well, which has a beautiful lacy motif at the top of the crown. Both versions are charted and written out.

With the option of the non-lace and lace versions, this is easily a pattern you'll use over and over again. Great as a gift for your favorite couple!
